Crap From The Past - Bonus: WLOL/Minneapolis, "Countdown '83", December 31, 1983


Published December 31, 1983


Radio aircheck.


Notes

Taped on two TDK D90 cassettes by Eric P, off the air from 99.5 WLOL-FM/Minneapolis, with no noise reduction. WLOL would count down their top 99-1/2 songs of the year, and these files include #37 to #1 in that countdown.

Transferred to the digital world in April 2008 by Ron Gerber, with pitch correction. Ron spliced portions of particular songs from CD to hide the places where the tapes were flipped. (They're painfully obvious, nonetheless.)

These files begin at 10:30 PM and extend until 1:26 AM, well after the new year started. The countdown was hosted by future radio legend Jay Philpott.

37. DON'T CRY - Asia
